In today’s fast-paced lifestyle, regardless of work or leisure, it comes as no surprise that people want three things in their life: convenience, flexibility, and mobility. Hence, the emergence of the 2-in-1 laptop.
For those who are unfamiliar with the term, a 2-in-1 laptop is a hybrid notebook that can be served as a laptop and a tablet. Depending on the model, this 2-in-1 laptop can be either detachable or folded away to be used as a tablet. But with plenty of 2-in-1 laptops out there, which one is worth buying?
Here's a list of the 9 best 2-in-1 laptops we've put together that might interest you based on different needs.
1. HP Spectre x360
Beyond its ultra-slim and lightweight design, the HP Spectre x360 is definitely not a slouch when it comes to performances. Thanks to its full HD display and ultra-thin side bezels, it gives you a maximum viewing experience when watching your favourite movies or high-resolution trailers from YouTube. Then, there’s the amazing sound quality blessed with quad speakers and new HP audio boost features custom-tuned by the legendary Danish audio experts, Bang & Olufsen.
Those who work in the creative industry will be pleased with the hybrid laptop’s speedy performance that enables you to render or edit photos or video files with little hassle, thanks to the powerful combo of Intel Core i7-7500U processor and NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics card. If you are looking for an all-around hybrid laptop, this is it.
2. HP EliteBook x360 G2
3. Dell XPS 13 2-in-1
4. Samsung Chromebook Pro
5. Samsung Notebook 7 Spin
With a large 15.6-inch HDR display, a reasonably powerful NVIDIA 940MX graphics chip and a lightning-fast Intel Core i7-7500 dual-core processor, the Samsung Notebook 7 Spin is a solid hybrid laptop worthy of a spin (no pun intended). Besides, the 12GB RAM and 1TB of storage space is sufficient not just for gamers, but also versatile enough for those who work as a graphic designer.
6. Microsoft Surface Pro
The fifth generation of Microsoft Surface Pro is a notable improvement over the Surface Pro 4. The hybrid laptop boasts a better battery life by 30 to 50% and is equipped with a 7th-generation (Kaby Lake) Intel Core m3 i5 processor. The good news is, it comes with a 256GB of solid-state drive and a decent 8GB of RAM made suitable for smooth coding or programming tasks.
7. Lenovo Yoga Book (YB1)
Lenovo Yoga Book offers the best of both worlds for writers and artists out there. The backlit touchscreen keyboard a.k.a. the Halo Keyboard offers a tactile typing experience, even though it might take time for you to get used to it. This is especially true if you are accustomed to the traditional keyboard.
The hybrid laptop also comes with a Wacom digitiser (stylus), which allows you to digitally write or sketch on the Create Pad. Alternatively, you can switch your stylus into an ink-based pen (Wacom Real Pen) to scribble or draw on a Yoga Book pad or any physical piece of paper. The Lenovo Yoga Book, which weighs at a scant 690g, is amazingly lightweight and can be carried around easily if you’re always on-the-go.
